Grateful for “company”
One of my favorite movies is Planes, Trains and Automobiles. We try to watch it around Thanksgiving, because the movie revolves around Steve Martin desperately trying to get home to Thanksgiving dinner with his family; John Candy in tow.
I’m sure there are some “edited” versions of the movie out there, but there is ONE short part of the movie that is filthy-mc-nasty with the “F bomb”; the rest is pretty tame.
Neal Shytles actually placed an ad in his local news station’s Facebook page in an effort to share Thanksgiving dinner with a family. Sad huh? (Hey that’s kind of ironic..Steve Martin’s character’s name in Plane, Trains, and Automobiles is Neal).
Ashley and Cory LeMore of Newport News, Virginia were the first to offer hospitality, so Neal took them up on their gracious offer, and will be sharing Thanksgiving with them. The holidays can be terribly lonely, so try to think of those who might not have anywhere to go, and offer them a spot at your table.
“I love both you and your husband even though I haven’t met you,” the Virginia man told WTKR of his gratitude toward Ashley and her husband. “Thank you so much. It means a lot to me.”
While Shytle says he’s ecstatic about having a family to spend Thanksgiving with, he’s not the only one excited about it.
“I just look forward to having him in our house and a part of our family for the day,” Ashley told the outlet.(1)
Now THIS is how we are supposed to treat each other.
